At 6-years-old, Hudson is our youngest student in our Advanced Gold Boys Gymnastics program. Advanced Gold is the highest recreational level a student can be enrolled in, so to be at this level at the age of 6, is a huge accomplishment. Hudson started his gymnastics career at the young age of two in Tiny Tots Level 2 and has been with us for the past four years! When he’s not in the gym, Hudson enjoys playing soccer. He loves coming to gymnastics because it’s tons of fun! Hudson describes his current coach Danielle as a great coach because she knows how to make gymnastics fun!
We are happy to announce James as our student spotlight the month of April. James has been a student and a part of the ASI family for the past 11 years! Each week when he enters the facility, he has so much joy. His smile and laughter are contagious. The entire staff adore him and his family.
James is currently participating in our Gymmie Kids program. Mom said that they got their start at ASI because their friends attended and they had programs for both of their children.
“James has special needs, he has low muscle tone. James cannot do or has the endurance that most 15-year-old boys do. Gymnastics helps him to gain muscle strength and assists in conditioning. All the coaches James has had at ASI Firewheel has made gymnastic fun, but has worked him hard.”
Mom said, “We love that James does gymnastics. We encourage the coaches to push James. The Coaches do and make gymnastics fun. We are so happy about what James can do and his strength. He can do pull ups on the rings and bars.” James has enjoyed all the coaches he has worked with over the years.
Outside of ASI James is a very active young man. He is involved with recreational basketball and a red belt in Taekwondo (one belt away from black belt). “We love that James does gymnastics. We encourage the coaches to push James. The Coaches do and make gymnastics fun. We are so happy about what James can do and his strength. He can do pull ups on the rings and bars.”
Thank you for letting us be a part of James’ Journey!

They love gymnastics because they like to run and jump. When they aren’t at ASI showing off their jumps, they are enjoying quality time with their older brother playing soccer and baseball at home. We asked Derek and Ellie’s parents how gymnastics is benefiting the kids and they said,
“We love gymnastics class because it helps develop fine motor skills and it helps teach our toddlers how to listen and follow directions. They have learned a tremendous amount since starting ASI and we love watching them get stronger and more confident week after week.”
